Arela Chemicals Pioneering the sustainable manufacture of food grade liquefied CO2

We are pioneering the sustainable production of food grade liquefied CO2 for local beverage makers in Ghana. Liquefied CO2 will be produced in a manufacturing plant by upgrading biogas generated by the anaerobic digestion of locally sourced maize stover, thus improving the sustainability and profitability of maize farmers as well as carbonated beverage producers. This biogas will also be used to generate 100% of the plant’s electricity demand, thereby enabling off-grid operation as well as excess methane which can be compressed and sold as bio-CNG for additional revenue. This production approach enables us to eliminate high costs and unreliable supply of electricity while reducing the carbon footprint of our operations. These savings are passed onto the beverage makers by providing them with an up to 50% discount on their liquefied CO2 costs.
